    Back to diet, one of my early LASH hikes I started out with mostly pasta, then switched to PB+J sandwiches for dinner, GORP for breakfast and lunch, with a Snickers bar for a mid afternoon pick me up. After I switched to PB+J, I stopped loosing weight.
    Peanut butter is HIGH in sugar and peanuts, a legume, is known to spike insulin and leave your BG elevated for extended periods of time - with or without the sugary jelly and the bread providing an extra spike in BG. REAL peanut butter - just peanuts - is much healthier but will still spike your BG and leave it elevated.

    Well said Deadeye!!!
    I don't worry too much about what my ancestors ate - they didn't live very long. But they were hunter-gatherers; they ate what they could. Meat and fish when they could kill it, fruits, nuts etc. in season. We are natural omnivores.

    However, the crap some people choose to eat at home or on the trail is amazing. I don't know why so many hikers expect to get high performance out of their bodies while eating low performance fuel. You can't live on Honey buns, pop-tarts (frosted raspberry thank you very much), and cherry coke. I think we can all treat ourselves on the trail - the calories will get used - but a better diet is bound to get better results.

    If you want to wander down a bizarre rabbit trail, look up 'breatharian'.
